I don't know all the gauges. I have gone for progressively thinner gauges, with wine/champagne mesh wire for the arms. It's thin and flexible, and I believe it's copper or brass. Not sure of the metal composition for the main wires, but they are magnetic.

Finished off the latest wave of sculpts for the 15mm Japanese Sengoku-era fantasy range at http://15mm.co.uk a few days ago. A few power failures and other events later…

The sculpts:
3 Gaki – While they are meant to be hungry ghosts, the visual depiction in ukyi-o paintings is that of classic flesh eating zombie.
Image
Image
Image
Image

3 Kitsune and kit
Image
Image
Image
Image

Peddler with Soba shop (4 parts) – I've always had this fascination with ramen shops as depicted in movies and anime. Before there were shops, there were the traveling soba stands. Way cooler looking than hotdog stands.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

2 Komuso monks – They could be flute=playing monks, or ninja…
2 Demon painters – This isn't that widespread, but the idea is that the painter can paint weapons or spells out on a scroll, or paint the demon to trap it. Perfect RPG-material
Image

Image
Image

Civilized Henge daimyo with katana
Barbaric Henge daimyo with katana
Oni princess
Image
Image
Image
Image

2 Armoured legs
Head sprue – kabuto helmets with sode shoulder guards
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Armoured Samurai and ashigaru tops: samurai with naginata, katana, ashigaru with yari, bow
Demon monk top
Demonic samurai with katana top
Policeman with sasumata
Skeleton warrior monk with yari

So, if you hadn't already heard, all the 15mm.co.uk ranges are now sold on the Alternative Armies website (since both are part of the same company, insert business decision here)

Wave IV is finally out on sale!

I find most of the pictures of greens and bare lead minis on this thread really hard to make out for some reason, the painted minis look great though.

Yeah, I'm pretty bad at photography. The pics I took the night before these were worse. The best were actually placed on a grey felt cloth. *throws hands up in the air*

You need to take individual photos of the figures. Open them in photoshop or something similiar. Manually cut away the background. Turn the image that's left into a 'smart object' then you can resize it to make it larger without losing much image resolution. Then do an image correction to change the lighting an shading and shit.

Then you get a bottle of vodka and drink it. Actually fuck all the image editing, just get vodka.

Nice minis btw.
